Sharing Sondheim

back to So Many Possibilties home page

“Say it soft, and it’s almost like praying.”

We are amplifying our Season of Sondheim with a special project: we challenge ourselves — artists, staff, and audience — to give voice to all of Sondheim’s songs — singing or speaking them aloud before the closing of Sweeney Todd (July 9). We will call this collective effort “Sharing Sondheim,” and it will feature a sing-along series (“Merrily We Sing-Along”), a song analysis series (“Into the Words”), talks and book signings with special guests, and other offerings to be announced.

View our progress in the image below – when a song has been spoken the title will change from black and white to color. Click on the image to expand it and scroll down to see the full song list and see when it was completed!
